energy companies that are creating jobs, it would extend unemployment insurance to 2 million americans who are actively looking for jobs out there. i have to say that ever since i took office, throughout the campaign, and over the last couple of months, my preference would have been to solve all these problems in the context of a larger agreement, a bigger deal, a grand bargain or whatever you want to call it, that solves the deficit problems in a balanced and responsible way that does not just deal with taxes but also spending so that we can put all this behind us and focus on growing our economy. with this congress, that was obviously too much to hope for at this time. [laughter] maybe we can do it in stages. we will solve this problem instead in several steps. in 2011, we started reducing the deficit through $1 trillion in spending cuts which have taken place. the agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest 2% of americans to pay higher taxes for the first time in two decades so that would add additional hundreds of billions of dolla

a big big portion of the problem. thank you. host: what energy end of the year energy issues are we looking at here and which ones are likely to get punted down the road? guest: that's a good question. i'm not sure what energy issues -- i'm not aware of any -- host: tax issues? guest: tax issues for the fiscal cliff. but going down the road you definitely have some issues. there's the need for a new highway bill, they've had trouble tasking the highway legislation because no one is willing to increase the gas tax. and our gas taxes are the main ways we pay for new roads and bridges and that kind of thing. so i think that's a relatively short-term problem. and then over the long term, which i've talked about here before, is that given that we're going to need some rev now help solve our future fiscal burden, one of the most sensible places to raise revenue would be through a carbon tax or something similar because that can also help us reorient our energy priorities to cleaner, less damaging greenhouse gases type of energy. host: i want to note that you can go to the c-span fiscal cl

monster energy drink, so much momentum with this energy drink it renamed the company monster. ultimately, it was a fad that would dry out and crash. it took years for the momentum to top out. i knew how stocks worked. peaked in july 2006, in part because they did a 5-1 split. even though they weren't supposed to do anything this encouraged people who had been in hansen a long time to take it off the table. and it picked up its fourth analyst, may 10, 2006 when goldman started covering the stock. two months to sell between goldman's initiation and the stock peak. prudence dictated we sell once the stock had four analysts. better to clear out early with inning than to wait for them to fade away. hansen and all other hot stocks started to cool off. and incredibly after hansen fell off the radar screen, and the active analyst coverage dwindled, the stock dwindled. an amazing ren nance, and when analysts stop following the company, but the company's earnings start speculating as the case with hansen in 2011, a storied lazarus like move can happen. especially when monster ended up vanquishing
